A fellow blogger and a new FoodBuzz friend Katie from Cook In A Bar nominated my blog for the One Lovely Blog Award.
I was never nominated for anything in my entire life. Well, if you count being “best” grammy, but no one else knows that except the 3 little tykes who made the proclamation.
I’m flattered and honored that Katie added me to her list of nominations and I feel it is imperative that I pass this on.
Blogging is a way to share, learn and meet new people who may or may not have the same philosophy, yet we can still share, learn and enjoy making new friends.
Since this award is new to me I wasn’t sure what being nominated actually meant. Should I just say ‘thank you’ and move on, or do I add my list of 15 bloggers. I did some research and I didn’t come across any of the bloggers giving this award and adding a “nominated” bloggers list.
I found several postings giving the award and adding a list of 15 blogs who were asked to share the love. It was quite a surprise to find that very few bloggers in the list of 15 actually acknowledged the award and added their personal list of 15.
Blogging is a passion which takes a big chunk of our time. It’s nice to ‘pay it forward’. Why shouldn’t everyone have a piece of the social networking pie?
As suggested by Katie, the list of rules are as follows:
Part of the fun of the award is sharing it with other bloggers. There are a few instructions that come with accepting this One Lovely Blog Award:
1. Post the award on your blog with the name of the person who bestowed it and include their blog link.
2. Share the love. [Nominate] List 15 other bloggers, whose blogs [who]you admire to receive this award.
3. Contact the blog owners and let them know they’ve been chosen.
I will use this nomination as a forum to Pay it Forward. Every week I come across many blogs that are interesting and entertaining. In no particular order here are some of the blogs I follow. A few have already received a ‘blog award’ but it’s always rewarding to know our time and the thoughts we share are read and enjoyed.
